In September 2017, The Washington Post featured an interview of the comedian in which he talked about losing his part as Saturday Night Live’s Donald Trump. In the interview, he talks about how he and his then-girlfriend Paulina Combow, moved to New York when he was hoping to revive his old Trump impersonation when Donald Trump had received the Republican presidential nomination. But to his dismay, he was replaced by Alec Baldwin, and instead of watching the elections, he spent the night watching ‘Game of Thrones’ with his girlfriend.
In the same year, Paulina Combow and Darrell Hammond also attended a comedy festival and Darrell uploaded several pictures of the event on his official Facebook account. Check it out below:
